Star Wars, Marvel, and more...
San Diego Comic-Con coverage brought to you by Tonner, Collectibles Insurance, and Big Bad Toy Store.
Sideshow Collectibles is proud to announce and launch an all-new collectible figure category, Legendary Scale(TM) Figures. This range features iconic characters from some of Pop Culture's greatest titles, film and comic alike. Legendary Scale(TM) Figures offer collectors a unique opportunity to own the seminal representations of their favorite heroes and villains as immensely impressive collectibles.
The increased size of Legendary Scale(TM) Figures provides Sideshow artisans with a larger creative 'canvas,' allowing added detail and realism in sculpture, paint application and costume fabrication. The larger sculptural base creates opportunity for pose realism and greater detail in a character's likeness, facial expression, and defining features, including skin and hair texture, unique markings, and scarring. Similarly, the paint application can be executed with greater precision for more natural shading and subtle textural details. Larger clothing patterns provide opportunity for better fit and accuracy in costuming, including greater authenticity in fabric choices and finishes, and functional pockets, belts, and closures.
With their striking realism, refined detailing and commanding size, Legendary Scale(TM) Figures elevate a collection into a gallery display. Intended for pedestal or tabletop presentation, these centerpiece figures are designed to stand eye-to-eye with viewers, drawing them in and challenging them to enter the world of the character, inviting them to relive the journey. These commanding figures are lifelike showpieces unlike any other, capturing the essence and emotion of Pop Culture's pinnacle characters.
Sideshow has established Legendary Scale(TM) as a term to describe big projects, as collectors have found with the Legendary Scale(TM) Bust series. The term Legendary Scale(TM) is a promise of bigger and better. The Legendary Scale(TM) brand allows the artists at Sideshow the freedom necessary to explore monstrously large characters, like Neytiri from Avatar and Sauron from The Lord of the Rings, in a large-scale size that still comfortably lends itself to display in a home or office environment. The Legendary Scale(TM) category will also provide a rich landscape for characters from various films and comic stories to be displayed together in a very complementary fashion. Although pieces may vary in true scale, Legendary Scale(TM) Figures will share a similar physical size and proportion.
Legendary Scale(TM) Figures offer collectors the most authentic representations of classic heroes and villains. These icons of comic, film and television have fueled the collective imagination for generations of fans, and none are more deserving of the reverence that these detailed and commanding figures comprise. With the greatest dedication to accuracy and authenticity, Sideshow Collectibles presents Legendary Scale(TM) Figures.
